Lectio 365

Lectio 365 is a free daily devotional resource that helps you pray the Bible every day.


Current series

Thy Kingdom Come

24-7 Prayer and the Lectio 365 team are joining with Christians around the world for a global prayer initiative called Thy Kingdom Come. Between Ascension Day and Pentecost Sunday, Lectio 365 Morning Prayers will include wisdom from the Most Revd Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury. Together we will unite to ask God to empower us by His Spirit to be effective witnesses for Jesus.

Creator God, who formed humanity from dust, breathe in me again. Revive me and sanctify me by the power of Your Spirit. Set my heart on fire with the good news of Your gospel.

Begins 26th May

Morning Prayers

Inspired by Lectio Divina, a way of meditating on the Bible that’s been used by Christians for centuries: follow daily Bible readings, thoughts and prayers that follow a simple P.R.A.Y rhythm:

P:ause to be still.
R:ejoice with a Psalm and R:eflect on Scripture.
A:sk for God’s help
Y:ield to His will in your life.

On Sundays, stop to pray a special Sabbath prayer of rest, and journey through special seasons including Advent, Lent and current events.


Night Prayers

Reflective questions, Bible readings and prayers to help process the day and prepare to sleep.

Reflect on the day that has passed, relinquishing stress and control

Rejoice in God’s goodness, noticing his presence throughout the day

Repent of my sins, receiving forgiveness for what has gone wrong

Rest in readiness for sleep

Read or listen daily

Lectio 365 content is available in written and audio format, and devotionals can be downloaded a week in advance to be read or listened to later. Content remains available in the app for 60 days.

The Lectio Story

We started in 1999, when one simple student-led prayer vigil went viral, and groups all over the world joined in to pray non-stop. Now, twenty years on, thousands of communities have taken part in 24-7 Prayer (in-person and virtually) in their churches, communities and cities, We’ve helped individuals all over the world to encounter God in prayer rooms – now we want to help people develop a daily relationship with Jesus. This is our vision for Lectio 365: to help millions of people to learn to pray the Bible every day and go deeper in prayer each morning and night.
